General John Osborn here. I am your District FL-11 Leader for Pickens Plan. We need YOU more than ever. Our organization has evolved and your role has become very clear. Come to the Pickens Plan website and add yourself to my friend list and also the District Group. Make firm plans to attend our monthly meetings, you will see the Pickens Plan has had new life breathed into it. Bring a friend, we have plenty of seating. We are having a guest speaker Thursday September 10th at 7:30 PM…see Pickens Plan website for maps and additional information. (listed on both the District and Events tabs)
Under my leadership you can have a tangible role in the operation of the district. You will be meeting “Mark Sharpe” of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners at the September meeting. I assure you this will be interesting and informative.
Please reply to my direct email at firstname.lastname@example.org We need to know you’re still active and ready to assist us in the revitalized campaign for “Energy Independence”. Also RSVP for the September 10th, meeting.
Gen. John Osborn
District FL-11 Leader
We are a voluntary community of individuals who are placing our combined support behind T. Boone Pickens and his efforts to send our government a clear (heard) message that we must reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil through the use of all domestic energy alternatives. This site is a place to interact with fellow Pickens Plan supporters, keep up with events and opportunities to help get more involvement. Please, I ask the first sites you visit to get accurate info and articles to see pretty much what the plan is about and where the plan stands. Some are long, please; take the time to get all the details. On the home page, click on About The Plan ~ Boone Cam ~ Blog
We need to Push.PickensPlan.com – or “Push” as we like to call it. Our future really does depend on us at this point in time! If not now, WHEN? If not you, WHO?
I am proud to put my efforts towards this cause. Mr. Obama has voiced that eliminating the dependence of foreign oil is a top priority. Look up your local leader from map on home pg.
There is a group for almost everything. The Forums/discussions on this site are many and you’ll probably find something that interests or concerns you. Some are very long and were started months ago. For the ones that concern you, please keep in mind, events are remembered and relayed differently by those commenting, which as we all too well know equals at least three sides to the event.
Again Welcome; Tom- Welcome wagon crew
After you have read the sites I mentioned, if you need anything else to help you, while you help the push, please stop by.
Boone has met with Obama's transition team - the President- elect is intent on getting us 100% off of foreign oil in less than 10 years. This is fantastic! WE MUST give the new President the "muscle" he needs to show Congress that the American people are squarely in support of this and will accept nothing less.
PLEASE get signatures of support: http://media.pickensplan.com/downloads/PP/pollingsignupsheet.pdf
We must get this done before Inauguration Day and give Obama the support he needs, AND INSURE that our representatives, special interests and lobbyists can not derail this effort. We must be louder and stronger. Thomas Friedman has said, only a huge grass roots movement will cause the revolution in change that we seek!
Take a petition to work... or school.... or wherever you go.
In the last few days I have picked up 68 signatures from various stores while doing my Chrismas shopping and another 16 at the gym, as well as 2 new army members - one who has vowed to get 100 signatures on her own. EVERYONE wants to get off of foreign oil! It is an easy ask- Boone has done the hard work.
I look forward to working with you. WE CAN DO THIS!
